What is Null Space Labs?
Null Space Labs is for anyone doing interesting things with technology and security. Since May 2010, we’ve offered wifi, coworking space, an electronics and hardware lab (with soldering stations and rework equipment), a wet lab, wood and metal working tools, public computers, an arcade, and, most of all, a creative environment that’s open to visitors.
NSL members work on various projects every week, including DIY electronics, hardware hacking, software programming, hacking (exploit development, penetration testing), information security, lock picking, game development, entrepreneurship, graphics programming, AI, photography, privacy, civil rights, and more!
The group that operates Null Space Labs sees itself as an infrastructure provider and exerts little influence over projects and events carried out at the lab. Members come from a variety of backgrounds and offer a wealth of experience, knowledge, and assistance for whatever you might be working on. We are trying to be financially independent and operate solely through membership fees, classes, and donations.

When can I visit Null Space Labs?
NSL has an “Open Door” policy. If we’re open, you’re welcome to stop by! We’re always open on Tuesday night from 19:00 – 01:00 (we often close much later). If you’re new we recommend stopping by on a Tuesday; most members and keyholders stop by on Tuesdays. We hold classes every Saturday. We’re open on other weekdays, too, but make sure to check this website (top left corner) or check IRC/call the phone to verify we’ll be around when you arrive.
On this website you will see a sign that says that we are Open or Closed. This is reading from a sensor connected to the front door of NSL. If it says open – the door is definitely open! With that in mind, it’s a good idea to hop into the IRC channel (Efnet #NSL) and do a sanity check. You never know how many people are at the space or how soon they will be leaving if you don’t ask!
You can also give us a call when you are nearby to verify someone is still there using our new phone number: +1-213-232-1332
